:This currently includes the ''[[Star Wars: The Clone Wars]]'' CGI series as well as the proposed live-action TV series (should it ever be put into production) and it is confirmed that this level of canon superseds C-Canon.

:The vast majority of ''Star Wars'' material, such as novels, short story collections, comics and selected video games. C-Canon material cannot contradict G-Canon material, but it is quite possible for the reverse to happen. In practice though, this is not likely to happen in the future, unless the proposed ''Star Wars'' TV series is designated G-Canon. The ''Incredible Cross-Sections'' book series (which helped spark the current iteration of the continuity debate) falls into this category.
